Keenan Auto Body Raises $21,500 for Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House

Keenan Auto Body, located in Clifton Heights, Pa., held its 11th Annual Charity Golf Outing at Penn Oaks Golf Club on June 4th.

“After an entire day of rain, I’m very pleased to announce that we have raised $21,500 for the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House,” said Keenan Vice President and COO Michael LeVasseur. “This money was earmarked for a reflection garden located in the front of the Erie street location in Philadelphia, Pa. There were also enough funds to fulfill the balance of last year’s $30,000 commitment donating a room to the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House.”

“This is the very first year that we had rain during the day of golf,” said Craig Camacho, Keenan Auto Body’s marketing director. “We were a little concerned that some of the golfers would not show due to the weather, but we were pleasantly surprised that everyone who committed showed up and had fun despite the rain.”  

The outing was followed by a banquet dinner, silent and live auctions, and a speech from a Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House recipient. The recipient was a father whose son was born with Beal’s Syndrome – a congenital contractual disorder where the child’s limbs were tightly constricted at birth, requiring several operations to properly correct the dysfunction.

Keenan Auto Body has raised over $150,000 in the last 11 years for charities such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Camp Make A Dream Foundation, Delaware County Children and Youth Services, the Papa Pandeli Fund, the Make A Wish Foundation and the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House.

Keenan’s 12th Annual Charity Golf Outing will be held at Penn Oaks Golf Club on Thursday, June 3, 2010.
